Cook launches new Iliac Legs in Europe

Cook : 22 July, 2008  (New Product)
Cook Medical has launched its innovative Zenith AAA Iliac Legs with Flex Stent Gapping following the product receiving CE marking certification.
The new product is designed to have increased flexibility and improved conformability, easing its path through tortuous patient anatomy. European availability will begin in July 2008.

“As a modular device, the Zenith Flex endograft main body represents the highest order of engineering achievement in the pursuit of improved outcomes for patients undergoing EVAR. But until now, no company has addressed the issue of dramatically improving the other components the ipsilateral and contralateral legs that seal the device below the aortic bifurcation. The development of the Zenith Flex AAA Legs is another step in Cook's ongoing journey to create innovative devices and technology that help physicians perform minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures with the least possible trauma to the patient,” explained Phil Nowell, global leader of Cook Medical's Aortic Intervention business unit. “In the near future, we expect to bring an even more advanced leg system to clinical trial that we expect may show even greater performance improvements.”

The Zenith AAA Flex Leg external stents are shorter than those of its predecessor, with increased gaps between the stents. It is this design that improves flexibility and conformability, reducing the potential of the leg to kink. The device, like the Zenith Flex main body, is constructed of polyester Graft material supported by stainless steel Z-stent bodies.
